OneUnited Bank Celebrates Success of Inaugural OneTransaction Conference
America's largest Black owned bank, OneUnited Bank, has made history again with its inaugural free OneTransaction Conference to close the racial wealth gap which happened on Juneteenth (June 19,2021). The conference boasted registrations of over 30,000 people! Attendees enjoyed back-to-back informative and entertaining 1-hour sessions that highlighted the OneTransaction formula – choosing one transaction to focus on in 2021 - with Black finance experts like The Budgetnista, Sharon Epperson and Chris Browning, as well as pop icons Daymond John who talked about how he built his profitable businesses and Emmy award winning actress Tiffany Haddish who talked about her love of homeownership and her pursuit of happiness. The segments covered the 6 transactions that can create generational wealth for Black America: wills, life insurance, home ownership, a profitable business, savings/investment and an improved credit score. A portion of the conference was hosted live by OneUnited owners Kevin Cohee, CEO & Chairman and Teri Williams, President & COO, at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute in the heart of Harlem, which provided a beautiful, culturally relevant backdrop for the live portion of the show. Kevin & Teri talked about the historic legislation making Juneteenth a federal holiday and what it means for the future of the Black struggle, the definition of "anti-racism" and how it relates to money and closing the racial wealth gap. Attendees were also invited to join the #BankBlack Movement, led by OneUnited Bank. In between pre-recorded segments and the live portions of the show, the audience enjoyed an exciting mix of music by D.J. Hasan Insane, who laid out the old school hits that kept the party going in between sessions. The full OneTransaction Conference replay is free and open to the public for viewing at www.oneunited.com/onetransaction2021.
